First and foremost I will like to thank each and every one of you for posting your experience because this really helps us with our future planning. This is why I am taking my time out to tell you ladies about my experience. I am 25 and I have 2 boys. I am having a TT, bbl and full back Lipo. I was schedule for surgery on April 5th with Dr. Yager but I felt really uncomfortable with him so I decided to cancel. I loved his staff but he was not so helpful. I also paid for a consultation at NYEE with Dr. Perkins at a teaching hospitals. He had an attitude and wouldn't show me photos of procedures that he had done. Through realself I found Dr. Francis...I love him and his staff. Anela makes me feel at ease about the whole surgery. I have posted a before pic. I have a keloid scar on top of my belly button, which I know that it will know go away after the surgery because its so high. So please when you see the after photos just know that it was there from the beginning.

Hey ladies...I had an appt today and I am back at ease. I saw Dr. Francis he said he can get about 1000 cc's per cheek. I am so excited. At first it was all about a tummy tuck now is all about my butt. I told him I needed some hips and I wanted an hourglass shape and he said it is possible. I am ready!!!

I AM GOING TO STAY WITH HER FOR A MONTH. SHE HAS A TWO FAMILY HOME AND THE DOWNSTAIRS IS EMPTY SO I WILL BE STAYING DOWNSTAIRS WITH MY MOM WHOM WILL BE TAKING CARE OF ME AND THE BOYS WILL BE UPSTAIRS WITH MY NINA :).

Hey chicas..I got my vicoden, valium and anti biotic all for $13.00. You gotta love having insurance.

Day 1 (Friday)- I was on so much meds that the ride home was not that bad. The anesthesiologist was a doll. Well let me start from from the train ride. I was so upset at the 5 train delays were ridiculous. However, I get there in time at 9am. I got there before Anela so I was worried because she keeps me calm. She arrived 5 mins afters...thank god. Went into surgery around 11am. I don't know what time I got out but all I know my butt was so uncomfortable. I even forgot I got a TT done. Which means no pain there whatsoever. Ladies make sure you get valium. That helped better than the vicoden. (Thanks Amanda313). My nina (godmother and MOM) gave me soup if carrots and lots of pineapple juice. They tried jello but I want to throw up.

Day 2 (Saturday)- I have always slept on my sides so its no biggie.....yeah right my sides are killing me. Anyhow, I walked a lil. PS...my husband is my soul mate. He has helped so much with these drains. I have 3 drains.

Day 3 (sunday)- lots of soup, water and meds.

Day 4( monday)_ I called to find out how many cc's and I have 1100 in my right and 1050 on my left :) I am happy!!!!
I will post pics soon I am too swollen.

I also added my inner thighs last minutes. I love Francis he has called to check up on me.

Day 5 (TUESDAY)- HOLA CHICAS.... I WENT FOR MY...

Day 5 (TUESDAY)- HOLA CHICAS.... I WENT FOR MY APPT TODAY AND GOT ONE DRAIN OUT. I HAVE TWO MORE LEFT. DOCTOR SAID HE WILL TAKE IT OUT NEXT THURSDAY..ANOTHER WEEK AND A HALF AHHHH. WELL I AM HAPPY I DIDNT HAVE TO GO TO MIAMI AND GET THE BUTT I WANTED!!!!!! DR. FRANCIS IS THE BEST!!!

Day 6 (Wednesday)- CONSTIPATION TO THE MAXXX...

Day 6 (Wednesday)- CONSTIPATION TO THE MAXXX OCHHHH....I TOOK MEDS TO SEND ME TO THE BATHROOM BUT THEY GAVE ME BAD CRAMPS. I KNOW YOU LADIES DONT WANT TO HEAR THIS (READ THIS ) LOL. WELL I FINALLY POOPED YAY AFTER 5 DAYS!!

DAY 7 (THURSDAY)- I CAN FINALLY MAKE MYSELF BREAKFAST. I AM JUST UPSET THAT I AM NOT DRAINING ANYMORE AND MY APPT ISNT UNTIL THURSDAY.

DAY 8(FRIDAY)- I AM FINALLY SITTING IN MY STOOL...OF COURSE WITH MY BUTT CHICKS HANGING.

THINGS YOU SHOULD HAVE
1. VALIUM...IS A MUSCLE RELAXER N IT HELPS BBL SISTERS.
2. VICODEN..PAIN RELIEF N KNOCKS U OUT.
3. ANTIBIOTICS....A MUST
4. SOUP WITH CARROTS TO EAT THE SAME DAY AFTER SURGERY WITH PINEAPPLES JUICE.
5. DIAL SOAP
6. GAUZE AND TAPE
7. I PEED IN A BUCKET...TMI BUT YOU DONT NEED TO GO SPENDING MORE....WE ARE ALREADY SPENDING LOTS ON SURGERY.
8.IF YOU HAVE A COMFY BED YOU DONT NEED SO MANY PILLOWS!!!
PS...CHICAS I AM ALL ABOUT SAVING!!!...LOL

  • Reply
@nik Wow thats alot of money! but if ur getting more than just a bbl than maybe its a good price? did he tell you how many ccs he will put into ur butt? Are you still going to do it? I had another doctor in mind that I was considering his name is Dr. Taranow hes also in manhattan and last time i had a consultation with him he was charging me only 5,000 for my bbl but idk if thats because I had did a bbl in the past and just needed correction... but at this point I wanna start from scratch the first time I did my bbl I payed about 9,000 so I think the price hes giving you isnt bad considering your getting more work done. My upper body is bigger than my lower and im trying to switch that around.
